British punk icon Hazel O’Connor was rushed to hospital last week after suffering “bleeding on the brain”, according to her brother Neil. The punk singer collapsed at her home in southwest France on January 9th and subsequently spent 24 hours in an induced coma.

O’Connor had received her COVID booster shot on December 8th, just a month prior to the incident.

Neil wrote in a blog post:

“On Sunday last, 9/01/2022, Hazel was discovered at her place in SW France and was found to have suffered a serious medical event.

She was taken to her local hospital where it was determined that she’d had a bleeding on the brain and that she should be transferred to a major hospital where her condition could more effectively monitored.

On Sunday things were touch and go and the next 24 hours would determine how her recovery may go.

She was put into an induced coma for about 24 hrs and brought out of it Monday evening and since then has been showing a lot of progress although, saying that, her recovery is going to take a while but she is tough and is responding to stimuli and to treatment.

She’s receiving the best of care i and I thank the French medical service there for taking such good care of her.”

On December 8th, O’Connor posted this video on Facebook from inside a vaccination center in France waiting to receive her third COVID shot:


O’Connor is best known for a string of UK top 10 singles from the early 80s: ‘Eighth Day’, ‘D-Days’ and ‘Will You?’ She is also well known for appearing in the 1980 Brian Gibson film Breaking Glass, in which she played the role of Kate Crowley.

Her solo album Sons and Lovers was released the same year, and she has continued to put out music ever since alongside roles in TV and theatre.

O’Connor had been due to tour the UK, beginning in March. An announcement from her website explained:

“We will keep Hazel’s health as the only deciding factor on these dates.”
